just made a break for it. all right. >>steve: it was one of the most heartbreaking and inspirational stories we heard. a college football star overcoming the death of his grandmother and girlfriend who both died on the same day. as it turns out, the girlfriend never existed. she was a hoax. this story is going to have you talking all day. was the player in on it? we're going to tell you what we know. >>brian: honey, they shrunk the foot-long. stingy subway workers caught serving subs that aren't exactly what you paid for. they were under a foot long but were sold as foot long. >>gretchen: welcome to the real world. >>brian: and welcome to "fox & friends." >>gretchen: wow! prince is here today? >>brian: you got your question and answer, how do you get to work? i take that little red corvette. a seventh-generation corvette completely redone. there you see one back from the day. it's interesting, the seventh-generation corvette i read only has two parts from the sixth generation corvette. it is completely redone from the ground up. >>gretchen: that old-fashioned one reminds me when my m

"fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: we're like carmelo anthony right now because people have microphones on us to hear what we're going to say. >>eric: make sure we don't do trash talking during the breaks. crazy. >>gretchen: i don't know if it's crazy or not. i guess we'll debate it. it all stems from carmelo anthony and kevin garnett when they got into it. maybe this is a way to try to curb some of that trash talking which is essential if you're a basketball player. i understand. it's an essential part of the game nobody talks about. >>eric: when you start calling somebody's wife a serial, you have crossed the line to say it. >>gretchen: let's talk about politics because there is no trash talking in politics. we all know that; right? back in september of 2006, i think it was, president obama -- and 2008, by the way -- when he was a senator, he talked a lot about the debt ceiling. remember, president bush was in office at the time, so senator obama would probably be against some of the things he was talking about, particu
hid for two and a half days. this morning you're going to want to hear his incredible story. >>steve: the president offering a way forward for america. it starts with a big left turn. >> we resolve a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortunes. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >>steve: will america buy that we the people is now we the government. we will report. you will decide. >>brian: one guy i know does buy it. it looks like he'll have his media in the corner with the president of the united states. this network executive heard an article telling the president to pulverize and destroy republicans. you can go for their throats. we see him sunday with bob schieffer. we can't make this up. we'll review it only for you on "fox & friends." >>steve: it is the coldest day of the winter so far here in new york city. that is why it was a good decision to go indoors today. >>gretchen: you know even though i grew up in minnesota, i hate the cold weather. so let'

-- steve jobs working in his career came up with stuff. i did not know that steve jobs was working in that group on the computer. we want to have space for that. we need space for innovation, it is a constant challenge. the power of the conventional is so overwhelming and the convergence is so powerful that to try to innovate is exhausting in government. let me tell you. in spite of that, i am ready for several more years of innovation. i hope you are. i hope california is. [laughter] [applause] >> for this next question, let's pretend that president obama is sitting in this chair. but pretend this is a private room -- let's pretend this is a private room. we need everyone out there to be quiet. if you were here along with the president, what are the two things you would tell him you need to make your state more competitive or all states more competitive? >> i think and i am an unabashed supporter of the president. i do not think all his policies are perfect but he has done a remarkable job of coming into an almost impossible situation in dealing with it as best you can. i can -- w
hard to get steve jobs back, so i have that going against them. rehabilitating when they were on the floor that introduced all of these products including the iphone in 2007. the iphone do not have much competition for the first few years after it was introduced. the first android phones from google were not that good, but the combination is very powerful and apple just as proof how fast things can happen is just how fast iphone five sales have slowed down. david: this is an epic business story. books will be written of how apple lost this extraordinary lead they had with a few months ago they would not lose for years, if ever. what is the lesson, what did they do wrong? thinking they could do no wrong? or what? >> that is a great question, david. steve jobs said something very valuable in the next 90s interview when he was out of apple telling the apple executives not to be greedy and live on high margin products because it would not last. you can substitute iphone for mackintosh and the same thing would be true today. they thought they could live in a world they could dictat
in today's "closing bell" exchange by hank smith and steve from comcast funds and our own rick santelli. >> hello. >> good to see you guys. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> hank smith, we haven't heard from you in a while. let me kick this off with you. how are you investing going into all of these earnings coming out from the banks this week as ahead of that debt ceiling debate? >> sure, maria. our equity portfolios are fully invested. we see no reason 2013 can't deliver very similar returns as 2012 did. the fact is we still have a good fundamental backdrop. the economy is expanding. it's not contracting or growing. value sheets are strong and valuations are very attractive so what is there not to like? >> you're our resident skeptic today, and i would point not to the normal averages that we quote every day, but look at the dow transportation average which could close at an all-time high today. the transportation companies, often a leading indicator for the economy. if they are doing well. chances are the economy is going to get better. wouldn't that make you want to buy stocks
but economically the ceiling has the capacity to deliver far more damage. you are talking like my friend steve kornacki here. what is failing to raise the debt ceiling? why is that going to be catastrophic? >> well, you know, first of all the stock and bond markets will really go haywire in a way they didn't when we were about to go over the fiscal cliff because government bonds are held by everybody. chinese central bank, japanese central bank, every single bank financial institution out there. so if there's any question over the value of those and they start to decline, these institutions have a great amount of leverage and interconnected with everything else and sort of see what happened in 2008. it's also this issue of, you know, who gets paid? if you start to have to say maybe soldiers get paid but not paying for the fuel or these doctors will get paid, you know, government is a huge force in our economy. like it or not. and the number of companies that would really be affected from walmart to every defense contractor to giant health care companies, if their ability to collect money that
about winn? nonetheless, steve wynn has put a lot of resources into macau, the vegas of china. things are getting better over there. i think wynn's a buy. then there's companies like boeing, which rallied despite terrible press. all of these companies that expanded rapidly around the globe and they have been roaring despite no research-oriented news that would make you feel all warm and fuzzy about the numbers. you can even consider dell part of this trend. yes, dell, the big service company that has been hurt by this rapid expansion at a time when no one trusted overseas markets. now dell might actually go private. ♪ hallelujah and it would make sense because half of dell's revenue comes from overseas. big companies with exposure to europe is doing terrifically. both have been kept back by worries. both ceos have said over and over, it's an issue. how about ford and general motors? have you seen these two? ford may have the best chart in the book. it's screaming. company doubled its dividend and getting european losses under control while china and latin america turned the corner.
it. so we've soeen it before. >> and i agree with steve on that, he has the audacity to disagree with me somewhat. i actually think the republicans looked at the fiscal cliff, they passed the senate bill, said it is up to you. they basically blinked and said we don't want to go over the cliff. so they know they don't really have it will them to want to default on the debt ceiling. the landscape is different from 2011, yes, they're still nutty and responding to that calculus. i don't think they're quite as credible in terms of actually causing a default. and take what? social security and medicare benefit cuts, that is tremendously unpopular, it would be a disaster. but also a catastrophe for the republican party. >> and this comes at a moment where they're being criticized from kind of all sides. i want to listen to something colin powell said yesterday about their identity problem. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i am still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do right now, take a hard look at itself. the country i
, your thoughts. >> yes, i just want to remind steve that the president was not too biz to personally hand select beyonce to sing national anthem at the inaugural. >> it is beyonce after all, not your 8 average citizens it is beyonce. >> yes, the -- >> steve said that with a certain amount of emotion. >> i think that they found the only 8 citizens who have benefitted by president obama. lou: you are not on the top, i can assure you that. speaking on the news, bob shafer talking about the president's comments, as he announced his proposal, look how he compares president obama taking on gun owners. >> surely, fines osama bin laden surely passing civil rights legislation, as lyndon johnson did, and surely defeating nazis, was a much more form it able task than taking on the gun lobby. this is a turning point in this country. and the president, is going to have to to do more than just make a speech about it, this is one of the best speeches i heard him deliver. but it will take more than that from the white house, he will have to get his hands dirty. lou: exciting when you hear a man tal
grove, craig barrett, titans. go back to the steve jobs, talking about the stodgy intel. there's a funny moment where andy grove basically told him to shut up. but there is a sense that intel didn't move fast enough. at one point they're talking about, listen, our battery life will start exceeding the arm. put on your apple hat, all right? they would rather do business with samsung's chip, even though samsung is their biggest competitor, than switch to intel. >> what are we missing? there's uniform negativity here. we'll look back on it at end of this year and say, wait a second, we should have thought of that. >> don't throw that. >> that pc was bad, and they had every right to go out the window. all right, i've calmed down. >> there's no hope? >> anytime you have that budget, you can do it. i like stacy very much. it's a great manufacturer. there's hope. >> okay. >> there's hope. same level of hope. silver lining theory i call it. >> okay. when we come back, a wall street analyst known for being a longtime bear on netflix. and from textbook reynolds to the linked-in for college student
>> steve: you keep sending pictures of your furry friends, so we're going to show you when it's not so furry, it's fifi the iguana. look at that. a fan of "fox & friends." >> gretchen: oh, my gosh. >> steve: very nice. keep them coming. >> gretchen: dr. ian will stick around for the after the show show. around congress and enact new gun laws with executive order. vice president biden telling house democrats at least 19 of those actions are being prepped and will be implemented whether congress likes it are not. leads to the question, what are they. i'm bill hemmer. happy tuesday on america's news room. martha: i'm martha maccallum. these orders are more aggressive of current laws which a lot of people said is really the first place to start, or, they will try to get the centers for disease control to do some national research on firearms. bill: on the other side many argue, democrats and republican lawmakers, you need to look at more than just guns. >> this is a very important constitutional right and we are very dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoin
? steve liesman has more on that. steve. >> the questions are not easy. they again into sell mandics and have everything to do with if the debt ceiling is solved, and if only for investors, the most important part, what's the economic impact? let's look at some of the rhetoric. the debt ceiling, is it a real tragedy or soap opera? what we have done is graduate the screen from blue over to red, democrat ideas on this side, red on this side. democrats right now hitting the debt ceiling, not raising it. so some republicans say it's manageable. on that issue carl mentioned of default, any missed government employees, that would constitute a default. others are say no, no, we're not paying off the debt itself, that's what default is. on another critical issue, could the government prioritize its payments, take the payments, the cash that's coming in and use it to pay a certain number of things? on this side,ed article mrgs is saying no authority to prioritize, and no ability, and the treasury have different payment systems. republicans say yes, and in fact they're working on a bill right
the -- who threw acid about him. doctors are now fighting to save his eyesight. the bbc's steve rosenberg has more. he joins me from moscow. an extraordinary story. do we have any idea what lies behind it? >> we do not know for sure. russian police have launched an investigation. what we found out today is that he had faced intimidation over the last few months of. the tires on his car were slashed recently. he suffered a cyber attacks. and of course, a physical attack, which has left him battling for his eyesight. we believe he will be flown to belgium, to a special burn unit later today to try to help the treatment. >> the bolshoi is something russians are extraordinarily proud of. is it known that there is a great degree of politics, and possibly very nasty politics, inside the bolshoi? >> yes, it is no secret there is not -- there is a lot of politics to this jewel of russian culture. and certainly, the suspicion is talking to people today at the bolshoi, that this could be the result of some fighting there. the director of the bolshoi said today that he is 100% certain that the attack is
gridlock steve cohen of memphis introduced a bill this week which would require states to use independent redistricting commissions in drawing those maps. here we in to talk about his bill and what he expects during president obama's second term, is congressman steve cohen. welcome to "the war room"." >> thank you good to be with you. >> michael: do you think they would or could pass this bill. >> whether they would is doubtful but it's an important bill because we have gridlock and the reason for that is too many districts are concerned about the primary and the far right and far left and they don't have to work with the whole community or the center, because of the partisan redistricting which we have in most states are drawn up just to suit their people or make them overwhelmingly ohio. ohio went for the president. ohio went to sherrod brown but yet 12 of the 16 districts drawn up by the ohio legislature were republican. that's not right. it does not reflect the will of the people. it reflects the lines they've drawn. it makes it that those the republicans don't have to work with the c

challenges. >> steve. >> is pretty hurt to know what will stand up to the supreme court and what won't. we just have a ruling from the seventh circuit court of appeals in chicago at the element cannot conceal to carry some constitutional under the supreme court's second amendment. the federal appeals court in new york took exactly the opposite view. if you go back and read the supreme court decisions, they suggest there's a fair amount of latitude for the democratic government to regulate guns, but they also put a definite boundary on how far those can go. an outright ban on handguns like in chicago before, like washington d.c. hackers to fraud. that is a second amendment right goes too far to extend the right of self-defense that the supreme court found to emulate the home is another question entirely. i think ultimately probably what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affect getting greatly constrained by what the supreme court is going to allow. the court on things like regulation of a particular type of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that will prob

't these common sense initiatives working? i bring you to texas and state representative steve toth. >> we insure that as texas we follow the united states constitution. if this government in tricks on our second amendment right giving us the right not only to bear articles but tells the federal government not to create any laws that infringes on those rights, we will do everything we can to push back against that. >> cenk: this is one of three lunatics across the country saying that we are not going to listen to federal law. so you've got representative joe carr in tennessee and wyoming state represent kendall kreker saying we are not going to listen to the federal laws, we're not going to listen to that. we are going to do whatever we want. >> that's one of the best accents i've ever heard. >> cenk: i remember that going down a couple of decades ago. how did that turn out for the south, tennessee and texas? >> it didn't work the way they thought. and again who is against background checks? who in america could be against background checks. >> is he actually against closing the gun show loophole
representative steve stockman, responding to the president's press conference. >> if he thinks these bills are good, his law is good, he should go through congress. he's not a king. reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> jennifer: the question, which is coming out of all of this is whether the president should fight for rational policy that he knows will not pass an irrational house of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better c
in lake michigan causing cargo ships and barges to liken their loads. connell: let's go to steve now on how it can impact your wallet. >> because we have had such low water levels, it will impact your wallet. it has been dry in the region. we have had light rains in the summertime in that has produced lower water levels in all of the great lakes. if you are wondering just how low it is, we have a graphic to show you. between 87 and 97, the water drop a foot. between 94 another foot lower. it is at historic low water levels in lake michigan. cargo companies will have to carry less. >> you cannot strike bottom. you have to maintain a safe distance. when the water levels go down, we have to reduce our load. >> the catch is that when you are shipping the very biggest loads by boat is the cheapest way. you can go by train, you can go by truck, what have you. if you are going to try to get there, you need to ship by barge or five oh. >> we have a lot of manufacturers here along the river system. you take away the barge auction, you could see ten, 20, 25% increase. that gets passed onto the

be receptive? steve more of the "wall street journal" senior economic writer joins me on the phone. what did you think about that? >> great to be with you. you know, the problem for chuck schumer is not so much getting republicans to get used to it. what about all those red state democrats in the senate. those are the people that are probably hyperventilating right now over what chuck schumer said if you look at the l.a. tour map, there are six, seven, or eight red state democrats that face reelection in 2014. melissa, i don't think too many of them are relishing the idea of voting for another tax increase. i wonder whether the chuck schumer, harry reid budget could pass the senate, even with just democratic votes because you have so many people that are up for reelection that are going to be very reluctant to stick their necks out and vote. by the way, as you know, we just had a $600 billion tax increase in the fiscal cliff negotiations. plus, we had $520 billion of new taxes from obamacare. this would be the third tax increase. melissa: i really hope you're right because i feel their is a

important source of intellectual exchange. the same way -- there was a very important step. steve collins will remember this. it used to be it years ago, really long time ago, if you were an academic and wrote a paper and had to submit it to a journal, it took two years ago published and two years after you wrote a paper for anyone knew what you were working on. then came the intent and working papers and so on and precision, you know, papers were available almost immediately for professional evaluation, but even that, of course, involved a long delay involved in doing the research and writing the paper and so on. what if you have a shorter perspective, shorter idea that you want to put up there? well, the internet has provided useful ways for people to communicate, to discuss interesting and diaz of monetary policy or anything else. i follow a lot of baseball blocks myself actually.

idea that senator wyden of oregon has been working with us and one, a newer idea that steve and i dreamed up in a bar in italy a few years. first of all, the president has been talking about stimulating the economy with transportation infrastructure investment. ron wyden of oregon and a republican from north dakota have been pushing for a trip bond program, $50 billion to be distributed, $1 billion to every state. we love the program, but it is going to help metro states, urban states. this concept of oregon and north dakota senators is a billion to go out to every state, so little states and big states all get the same benefit. this would be distributed over six years and the cost to the treasury would be paid for. and there would be no debt incurred at the state level. we think that that proposal has tremendous potentials. senator hoeven came by to speak to us last year and wyden last year. mentioned your program and we would love to see it. the next thing i want to put on the table and this should scare the pants off of all of you. this is real and this is jack's work, so you k
